About Diamond Comic Distributors, Inc.
Founded in 1982, Diamond Comic Distributors resides at the Nexus of Comics and Pop-Culture with a multi-channel platform of publishing, marketing and fulfillment services, coupled with an unparalleled global distribution network for its retailers, publishers and vendors.
What started as one man’s hobby, with only a single warehouse and 17 retail customers, has evolved into the Diamond of today: the world’s largest distributor of English-language comics, graphic novels and pop-culture related merchandise.
Our mission is simple: to provide our wholesale customers the best in products, price, and personalized service. That's why we bring our customers the merchandise they want at a fair price and deliver it to them quickly, accurately and reliably.
For our publishers and vendors, it means an unsurpassed commitment to their businesses: marketing their brands, selling their products, managing their inventory and growing their market share each and every day.
Our Founder and current President & CEO, Steve Geppi, doesn't believe in second-place efforts. This idea goes beyond the vast product selection, competitive discounts and pioneering services which Diamond offers. It goes... to caring about the industry and the relationships we’ve cultivated in over 30 years of business.
Above all, Diamond aims to treat its customers with one resounding quality: respect.
